British Infantry Belt Kit: Review JayJays Gen 4 Web Gear
This is a instructional session on the applicability and use of the British Army belt kit (webbing), focusing specifically on a review of the JayJays Gen 4 web gear, in this case the commanders version.
Gen IV Commanders Description:
The Gen IV Commanders is a totally flexible belt kit system where the pouches are permanently fixed to the pad.
For 20 years JayJays has been the UK market leader in permanently fixed belt kit systems and since the first concept was designed our belt kit has been constantly developed. Subtle design changes and features over the years have made this the preferred belt kit of the British Soldier.
Fixed pouches allow us to cater for users with a small waist size. Due to clever design we are able keep the same number of pouches required and sew them to different length pads, making the belt kit a perfect fit for the user.
The design of the Gen IV reduces bounce of the belt kit. When all the pouches are full they stabilise against each other making a solid form that does not bounce or rock. This combined with the spacer pad ensures an ergonomic comfortable fit.
The latest version of the Gen IV comprises of all polymer hardware making it rust resistant in jungle environments. The addition of the polymer hardware also reduces overall weight without compromising strength.
Spacetec spacer fabric is used for padding to allow it to be as breathable as possible but still very flexible so it hugs the body.
